Subject: Re: [office-requirements] Starting up ...


Thanks for the feedback.  I had in mind points 1 and 3 below but I
think the second item (regarding tooling) is a really important one.
It has come up on a TC call before and was also a point of discussion
around DIS29500 processing of comments.

I know ECMA created something for producing the final resolution of
comments document.   Various NBs (including UK and SA) made use - or
abuse - of a software issue-tracking program called mantis to try to
organise the work.  In both of these cases they were not dealing with
the front end process of actually collecting the comments.

I think the general conclusion to be made is that (1) tooling is
really important where there is significant public interest in a
standard and (2) the specific tools (if it is specific tools which are
required) don't yet exist. Its also not just an OASIS problem - I know
SC34 were also considering the issue regarding collection of comments
for OOXML.

Doug, do you know if there has been any proposal there?

Does anybody know what can or can't be hosted on oasis?  Or are we
restricted to the basic structure which is provided?  Would it be
allowed (or even proper) to host a "tool" outside of oasis?
